Gtk support now compiles on the build system
I have installed
pkgconfig packages on the build machine
and Gtk vcl plugin now compiles. It is really bad practice to expect pkgconfig to be available and
not check it (see #i26463# for
And, BTW - there is almost no difference between Gtk and Native look in SRC680_m36.-----

Build of SRC680_m36 finished
I have just finished building of the tag SRC680_m36 on GNU/Linux.
The first one is about including GTK files and the second one is known build issue in
And of course: modules
gtk are missing, so please do
not ask about them ;-)

cws_srx645_ooo112fix1 is now officially closed
As Sander wrote on releases: cws_srx645_ooo112fix1 is now closed and in hard freeze!
Just a side note: yes, Sander is in Germany. How else could he enter sharp-S on English keyboard? ;-)-----

build-5 is on FTP, upgrading GNU/Linux build system
build-5 is now being mirrored to the server ftp.linux.cz (BTW - it is running on Opteron now).
The other interesting news is that I'm going to upgrade also our GNU/Linux build server today. The old system was based on SuSE Linux 8.0, the new system will be SuSE Linux 9.0. This is not the latest (my own system is now on 9.1), but new enough ;-)-----

Windows build broken at the moment
I can't provide Windows builds at the moment, because #i28086#. I think it will be fixed today, so builds will be ready for testing during the weekend.-----

Build-4 is now being mirrored to ftp.linux.cz
I have just started uploading build-4 to the ftp.linux.cz. Please test languages, that were merged last days.-----

South African languages merged in cws_srx645_ooo112fix1

Welsh is now merged in for 1.1.2
I have just finished merging of Welsh language (#i24041#) to OpenOffice.org 1.1.2. Builds are now being produced. Welsh people were really active in the past (many updates to GSI, testing etc.) so the merge was without problems.
In the meantime, patches for South African languages (#i24170#) are now updated to be merged tomorrow.
I had a quick look at Lithuanian patches (#i27528#) but the patches are not yet completely ready for merge (thus postponed to 1.1.3). But I have started to add support for Lithuanian to my build system to bring it up-to-date and complete faster.
The remaining language is Basque (#i27939#) that I left for tomorrow too (but it seems to be well prepared).
Well, it is 1:20 so I really have to go sleep now.-----

Our central FTP server (ftp.linux.cz) will be unavailable tomorrow (Friday, CEST) because it will be upgraded to new system/platform.
We apologize for any inconvenience it may cause.-----

Just upgraded to SUSE Linux 9.1
I have spent almost the whole day by upgrading my notebook (DELL Latitude X200) to SUSE Linux 9.1. The upgrade went very well and everything is now working again with 2.6 based kernel.
I've changed several things in how I use the system with the upgrade from 2.4 to 2.6 kernel. Because I almost exclusively use X, I decided to go xdm way to get rid of the waiting for X to come up after boot. 2.6 kernel also handles extra keys on the notebook very well. This simple command:
setkeycodes e001 112will define key with scancode 0xe001 as key with keycode 112 and it is very easy to define other keys. With 2.4 kernel, I need to patch the kernel to get that small 'i' key to lock my screen ;-)
Next days will show how successful I was ;-)
Many thanks go to local SuSE CR offices, because they were able to send me CDs via messenger so I could upgrade just when my new harddrive arrived.-----

MIDP with J2SE/J2SE?
Would you like to use your J2ME applications with J2SE or J2EE or provide demo version of your MIDlets on the web?
There is an interesting project MIDP-EMU that allows you to create an applet or standalone version of your J2ME applications.-----

Czech translations updated
I have updated Czech translations to be up-to-date with upcoming OpenOffice.org 1.1.2. The same will be done by other teams as well.
I hope to finish the first complete localized builds on Mac OS X server without manual tweaking tomorrow.-----

More localize fixing
localize made me angry again thus I set down and extracted patch
which removes DOS line endings from files touched by
localize and also fixed another annoying
localize when extracting strings put the date and time at the end of every line of GSI
file. The date was in the format 20040411, but the time in the format of 1:1:7. This
patch fixes it (01:01:07).
So the only
localize bug remain - merging new languages in the bad places. This bug is in two places
(we use this patch
to fix this issue for our set of supported languages).

More work on supported languages

Table of all supported languages with other info
I prepared the table of all supported languages. Please have a look at it and report mistakes/new informations to me.-----

Upgrading Windows system/compiler
Today, we have upgraded our Windows build machine to shiny new Intel P4 with HT, 800 FSB, 1GB RAM, SATA WD Raptor 36G disk (10000 rpm). But this is not everything. We have also replaced old MS VC6 compiler with .NET 2002 and upgraded our build system to it.
We are curios how this affects the time needed for complete builds.
New compiler allows us to "fix" #i21646# and also start building devel branches on Windows.
Many thanks to our sponsors (who paid for the machine) and especially to Josef Cacek and Radim Peša from Institute of Computer Science (Masaryk University Brno, my alma mater) who managed the whole administrative/technical burden of this process and let me work on things I like to/I know.-----

Změny v dozorčí radě České pošty, s.p. (Czech)
Dnešní Hospodářské noviny v článku "Mlynář vyměnil předsedu dozorčí rady České pošty": Ministr informatiky Vladimír Mlynář odvolal z dozorčí rady České pošty svého bývalého náměstka Jaromíra Šišku... Tato změna souvisí s připravovanou transformací státního podniku na akciovou společnost.-----

Build system updated to cws_srx645_ooo112fix1
I spent a lot of time on upgrading our build system to cws_srx645_ooo112fix1.
I have received ssh access to new toy:
Darwin blueshark.local 7.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 7.3.0: Fri Mar 5 14:22:55 PST 2004 root:xnu/xnu-517.3.15.obj~4/RELEASE_PPC Power Macintosh powerpcand it works quite well (read slow like hell, but compiles). Only minor corrections are needed to get it compile using our build system (ccache works great here too!). I hope the first installation sets will be ready at the beginning of the next week.
I wonder how is it possible that all systems have different implementations of awk so that I have to fix my script FixLocalizeErrors.sh for every new system. This time it was line endings issue :-(
I have also extracted and applied patch from #i24082# to fix issue reported by Czech users to our builds so this issue should be fixed in the next build.-----
April 06, 2004 10:38 PM
CVS branch cws_srx645_ooo112fix1 is now opened for fixes targeted to OpenOffice.org 1.1.2 release. My plan mainly includes merging Welsh and South African languages, but there are many issues targeted to 1.1.2 now - see IZ.
As always you can track the changes using Bonsai.
I have also filed "dead link" issue (#i27515#) which is really annoying especially with automounter.-----

Kerning with and without patch from #i23684#

Builds with pair kerning patches
I'd like to ask you for testing the patch. Builds for Microsoft Windows are now available and GNU/Linux builds are being mirrored now (even German and English builds).-----

Type 1 font kerning patch available
Philipp Lohmann fixed issue #i23684#. Font kerning for Type 1 fonts now works again! Please test this patch thoroughly so we can integrate it for 1.1.2 instead of the set target 1.1.3.-----
